    I believe the range could be anywhere from 42 - 180 km

    Not sure what version though, couldn't find anything about it. I would assume it was the MM40 and that would make it 180 km but who knows \_(ツ)_/¯.

    Why are you asking my
    Persian friend? Got any ships in production that are susceptible?

    124 km

    JEDDAH: The “Tufan 7” exercise and the graduation ceremony of 6,021 Border Guard graduates were held on Wednesday under the patronage of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Naif, deputy prime minister and minister of interior, at the Mohammed bin Naif Academy for Maritime Sciences and Security in Jeddah.

    Taking part in the exercise, which simulated action taken to deter terrorist attacks against vital sites and important islands, were marine and land border units, newly introduced and managed based on a new operational concept, as well as several security planes from the Interior Ministry.

    Prince Naif was accompanied to the event by Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud, adviser to the minister of interior; they were received by Prince Abdullah bin Bandar, deputy governor of Makkah, Prince Saud bin Abdullah, deputy commander for security affairs of the Emirate of Makkah Region, Border Guard Director General Maj. Gen. Awad bin Eid Al-Balawi and senior Border Guard officials.

    Al-Balawi said integrated border security involves the collaboration of security officers from land and maritime facilities, which greatly contributes to securing the stability of the country, vital to preserving the national identity, developing the economy and protecting its resources.

    He added that securing the northern border, as per the instructions of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, the marine development project and the integrated security project are proof of the country’s capability to enhance border security.

    The graduates followed, among others, the International Law Enforcement at Sea course, in which trainees from 15 countries participated, and the amended Code of Practice to the Convention on the Suppression of Unlawful Acts, hosted by the Ministry of Interior in cooperation with the International Maritime Organization.

    Al-Balawi highlighted the female participation in the training; 52 female security inspectors received training this year during the security training course for border guard inspectors.

    The ceremony was attended by dignitaries, officials from the Ministry of Interior, both civilian and military, military leaders and leaders of the security apparatus, members of the diplomatic corps in the Kingdom and leaders of border guards from neighboring countries.

    Indeed. I guess Israel has given up on trying to stop the F-15 from coming to Saudi, lol. They tried on the original procurement just like they did with Egypt but failed in Saudi's case. 3obal el ef khamsa w'teleteen ISA. ;) :tup:
    That 8-ship close formation is perfect. 4 with belly tanks and 4 without.

    Speaking of tanks, that new F-15S for Saudi Arabia and others like the F-15E Strike Eagle have those conformal fuel tanks. That bulge next to the air intake is that tank that they can install to increase the aircraft's range and take it off if they chose to. It's so discreet looking and aerodynamically blended that it tends to stay on almost all of the time, unlike the spine-mounted CFT's you see on the F-16 and other similar A/C. The C model doesn't have them as it's more of a dedicated Air to Air combat platform but could easily have them installed on it if the plumbing is there. A timeless design. From below, the MiG-29 shares some resemblance to the F-15, in the overall shape but especially in back area with the H-stabs. Saudi Arabia made a great choice by selecting the F-15 and in such huge numbers. This S model is fantastic. It would be nice if Saudi took a certain number of those and painted them with a cool, desert camo, like some of the Tornadoes.

    Add those to the lethality of the F-15 and bang! Even on the Typhoon. The beauty and one of the many advantages of having that group of different, but all-western block AC.

    Took me a while to figure out what aircraft that was in the pic with such skimpy, rear, landing gear! :lol:

    JEDDAH: The King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) unveiled in Riyadh on Thursday the strategic drone program Saqr 1.

    Prince Turki bin Saud bin Mohammed, president of KACST, said the techniques used in this aircraft put it in the list of the world best UAVs.

    “Saqr 1 is equipped with a KA satellite communication system that gives superiority and privilege to this aircraft to fly at a range of more than 2500 km,” he said.

    He also stressed the ability of the aircraft to fly low and high when necessary, as well as the ability to carry missiles and guided bombs by the laser system and launch from different heights of 500 to 6,000 meters and up to 10 km with accuracy of less than 1.5 m.


    Prince Turki pointed out that sensitive technologies were transferred to this project, such as rocket techniques and sensor systems including high-temperature thermal cameras and laser systems from several international companies with global experience.

    The strategic UAV is characterized by its ability to fly at an average altitude of 20,000 feet and a flight time up to 24 hours. It also features automatic takeoff and landing.

    It can also use parachutes in case of emergency. It can carry day and night cameras and can be equipped with radar techniques, electronic warfare techniques, electronic jamming and eavesdropping.

    Prince Turki said: “The strategic aircraft is made of carbon fiber and glass, and is characterized by light weight and low consumption of fuel due to its good design and manufacturing efficiency.”

    He added: “Saqr 1 was designed and manufactured by Saudi hands in KACST, where Saudi national cadres capable of manufacturing, operating and maintaining it were trained.”

    “A single system consisting of two aircrafts and an operating room was developed,” he said. “It is a developed system of the first generation, which contains satellite communication and ammunitions.”

    He pointed out that work is being undertaken on the third generation of this aircraft through the manufacture of four aircraft and an operating room ending in 2018.

    By Ibrahim Alawi

    Okaz/Saudi Gazette

    JEDDAH – The special force in charge of protecting vital installations will be given advanced training to combat terrorism and carry out rapid intervention, said Maj. Gen. Saad Al-Jabari, commander of the force to ensure security of installations.

    Fifty officers from the force have qualified to attend the intensive training programs to be conducted inside the Kingdom and abroad, he pointed out.

    Speaking to Okaz/Saudi Gazette on the sidelines of a graduation ceremony for officers who attended a training course to combat terrorism and rapid intervention, he said Crown Prince Muhammed Bin Naif, deputy premier and minister of interior, has approved the new training program.

    The graduation ceremony took place at the training center for security forces in Jeddah.

    He said the new training courses would strengthen the capabilities of special security forces to protect the Kingdom’s oil and industrial plants as well as other vital installations.

    “This is the second graduation ceremony of officers who have attended the training course. It will be followed by graduation of the remaining officers in order to raise the capabilities of special forces in charge of safeguarding vital installations,” Al-Jabari said.

    He also noted his force’s contributions toward safeguarding pilgrims who come for Haj. “We have reviewed the force’s performance last year to avoid negative aspects. We have conducted a number of workshops with relevant agencies for this purpose,” he added.

    Maj. Gen. Abdullah Al-Khalaf, assistant commander of the force for planning and development, said the advanced training program to combat terrorism was the result of efforts made during the past years.

    “The training programs have been upgraded considering the importance of vital installations such as oil refineries and pipelines being protected by the force,” he explained.

    He said domestic, regional and international challenges demanded rapid intervention by the force in coordination with other security agencies, with greater professionalism.

    “Seventy-seven officers have joined the training course from the force deployed in Madinah, Asir, Jazan, Najran, Makkah, Northern Border Province and Tabuk,” the assistant commander said.

    “They have received special training in fitness, special skills, weight lifting, overload, long walk, crossing barriers, trenches, carrying luggage and traveling through difficult terrain,” Al-Khalaf said.
